Finding Purpose in Your Home
Introducing the 4th annual Homemaking Ministries Online Conference! 
Kim Hawkins
Faith, Grace, & Giggles
"This conference has been an amazing blessing to me. I normally, would buy something like this and let it sit forever before I got into it - but I jumped right in on this... and I'm so glad I did. The sessions are life changing! I'd never thought of my work at home as a ministry, and certainly rarely thought of it as being biblical. I loved hearing about the different things that people do -- especially hearing about how cleaning doesn't come naturally to all of us, music to my ears!

I'm grateful to all of the speakers for sharing their message and heart for homemaking. Thank you God for showing me this, and giving me the nudge to actually start listening right away!" - Kim H. 
Join our Live online conference
September 25 - 29, 2017
Fully Online
A one of a kind community
There is no other resource out there like this for Christian women. It's a fully online conference where Gospel-Centered theology meets everyday practical living. 

And the best part? You don't have to find a babysitter, pay for a plane ticket, arrange a hotel, etc. It's all online so you can participate and watch from the comfort of your living room - in your pajamas! 
Watch anytime
Everything is recorded! 
One really fun aspect of this conference is getting to participate live with all the other attendees and speakers. 

But as a busy mom with five young kids, I know that it's not always realistic to watch along live. So whether you miss one session - or all of them - you can watch later. 

We record all the sessions (at NO extra charge) and you get them to watch anytime you need - even if that's in six months! I really want to make this conference as flexible as possible for you. 
Join the Community
Including a pajama kick off party! 
The 27 conference sessions this year are obviously amazing but the really FUN part of the conference is the private Facebook group community! 

Each year this community in the conference has grown and this year is going to be better than ever! You will get the chance to interact with all the other attendees, chat directly with each speaker after their session, and get to participate in some really fun parties and giveaways during the week. The private Facebook community might just be my very favorite part of the whole conference!

When you are feeling discouraged...
As a busy wife, mom, and homemaker, there doesn't ever seem to be enough time to get everything done that I need to. More often than I care to admit, the work can pile up and I am left feeling discouraged, overwhelmed, and defeated. 

Does that sound familiar? 

No matter your family status or stage of life - one thing is true: some days are just plain tough! And if we are not careful, these overwhelming days can quickly become the norm! So what's a busy woman to do? How do we find more joy and peace in our days? 
Earlier this year I gave birth to my fifth child - our first baby girl! She is the fifth baby we have had in just over FOUR years. 

Yup. You read that correctly - we have two sets of twin boys and a baby girl. Our oldest boys are 4, our younger twins just turned two this month, and Magnolia is almost 6 months old. 

God has grown our family by leaps and bounds in four short years and we are so incredibly thankful. I couldn't imagine a better layout for our family now. 

But I will be perfectly honest: Some days are tough, overwhelming, and down right exhausting. 

Can I get an AMEN?!
You don't have to have five kids in four years - or any kids for that matter - to know what it's like to wake up and face your day with a begrudging sense of duty rather than JOY and excitement

And that's what this year's conference is all about. The theme for this year is Finding Purpose in Your Home so that you can find more joy and peace that only comes from God within your home! 
Hi, I'm Jami Balmet! 
I began blogging in 2009 when Jason and I were first married. I was a brand new homemaker and had NO idea what I was doing or how to run and manage a home. 

I began this blogging journey just sharing about my day and what I was learning - but I quickly fell in love with sharing resources and a passion was ignited within my heart. 

A passion to encourage women to treasure the Gospel within their homes. 

Along with this passion, something became VERY clear to me: The more we truly treasure the Gospel and seek to apply it to our daily lives, the more we can be transformed, and our homes along with us. 

The Gospel and our Christian walk has profound implications on our home. But how do we apply it? 

Join our 2017 Homemaking Ministries Online Conference to find out! The theme for this year is Finding PURPOSE in your home. 
So if you've ever felt discouraged in your home because things just aren't clicking. 

Or you've ever felt defeated after a long hard day. 

Or you want to know what the Bible has to say about being a godly woman. 

Or you are craving a little community with like-minded women. 

Or you want to discover the deeper purpose and meaning in all those mundane chores of the day...

Then I want to invite you to join us for the 4th annual Homemaking Ministries Online Conference! I am not exaggerating when I say that this will be our very BEST conference yet!! 

I hope you will consider joining us. 

In Christ, 
Jami Balmet

Natasha R.
2016 Conference Attendee
"I'm a mom of four very young children, and often in this season I get overwhelmed with the weight of what God has put solidly in my lap. This conference was in many ways the catalyst I needed to get off my train of overwhelmed homemaker and back to being the blessed Child of God who was given a husband, home, and 4 beautiful children to care for for Gods glory. The sessions spoke to my soul and gave refreshment, while the more practical sessions gave clarity and tools to help calm what seems like an endless circle of homemaking. This conference was a huge blessing in a hard season and I will absolutely attend next year." - Natasha R.
